Strange Assert on queue.c

Posted by ranco9 on April 13, 2015


I am getting the next Assert fail: configASSERT( !( ( pvItemToQueue == NULL ) && ( pxQueue->uxItemSize != ( UBaseType_t ) 0U ) ) );

on function: BaseTypet xQueueGenericSend( QueueHandlet xQueue, const void * const pvItemToQueue, TickTypet xTicksToWait, const BaseTypet xCopyPosition )

when executing this line: bPass &= xQueueSendToBack(fxBtQueue,(void *)0,50 / portTICKRATE_MS);

SW works well but it seems i can't pass a zero to the queue without getting this assert, does it make sense?

Thank you & Best Regards, Ran

you should pass an address of variable in the xQueueSendToBack. The xQueueSendToBack will copy the data from your variable to the internal Queue buffer.


bPass &= xQueueSendToBack(fxBtQueue,(void *)0,50 / portTICKRATE_MS);

should lokk like this:

char value = 0; bPass &= xQueueSendToBack(fxBtQueue,&value,50 / portTICKRATE_MS);
